THE OFFICIAL VIRAL CHALLENGE EVERYONE IS TALKING ABOUT
This challenge is the first of its kind ever -- be a piece of history to help us raise 1 million dollars, $1 at a time. Simply donate $1 & challenge your friends and family to do the same. We created this challenge to prove the power of "ONE" -- that very LITTLE ($1), from MANY people can make a BIG difference! We encourage you to donate $1 dollar for each person in your household. For each dollar donated, we will print a name on the one-of-a-kind WORLD CHANGERS t-shirt.
TOGETHER WE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE
We started the ONE DOLLAR CHALLENGE in the midst of COVID-19 to focus on people's mental health NOW and AFTER we get back to "normalcy". Our non profit's (OneGoalProductions.org) goal is to change the world with a message of hope to combat bullying, suicide and mental health among our youth and families. One way we've been doing this has been through one of the most requested school assemblies in America, the "Destroy Illusions Tour". Our motivational speaker, Tom Coverly has spoken LIVE on stages to over 3.5 million people about bullying, suicide prevention and mental health issues. He has watched schools, students and parents come together to change entire communities. Now that schools have shut down, we have been working hard to offer alternative solutions to help our youth, families and schools in America.
Every 2 hours in America someone between the ages 11-21 chooses to end their life. Suicide has increased 33% in the past two decades and public health experts are projecting a rise in those numbers more than ever before. The affects from isolation during quarantine, increased online bullying with students home more, families arguing more due to stress has anxiety and depression sky rocketing right now. Parents and schools are crying out for help. We have solutions. But, we need YOUR help to make them happen.
HOW WILL YOUR $1 HELP?
HELP SCHOOLS DEALING WITH A SUICIDE -- For several years we have offered schools in the midst of a suicide crisis an assembly at no cost rather than charging our normal speaking & travel fees. Your generosity will allow us to reach even more schools presently dealing with a suicide crisis, enabling us to reach millions more. Schools are looking for answers on how to deal with this all when school is back in session. We want to be on the front lines to help.
PRINT & DISTRIBUTE BULLYING PREVENTION CURRICULUM -- For the past year, Tom Coverly and his wife have been writing a curriculum (Real Respect - respecting yourself & others) for schools. Our goal is to take the powerful message from the school assembly and makes it applicable to everyday life of every student. Schools are looking for resources with substance that can help families RIGHT NOW during the school shutdown. Your generosity will help us with design layout costs and print the curriculum right away to put it into the hands of schools and homes.
MAKE OUR SCHOOL ASSEMBLY DVD SPECIAL AVAILABLE TO PARENTS -- We brought a film crew with us to film several schools assemblies right before the shutdown of schools. With your generosity, we will be able to reproduce our Blue-Ray School Assembly special, making it available to the world ASAP. Families will be able to view our school assembly right in their living rooms during quarantine.
REACH MORE SCHOOLS -- To date, over 3.5 students have heard our motivational speaker, Tom Coverly speak in their school. With your help, we can add many more top professional youth speakers to our nonprofit roster, enabling us to reach millions of more students with a message of hope. Your dollar can help provide students with this hope by helping our non profit with the cost of travel to and from schools and financially to compensate our speakers.
REACH PEOPLE OF ALL AGES -- If we raise more than the one million dollars through the sales of the world changer t-shirts, our biggest dream would be to collaborate with a corporation and create commercials that will inspire & impact millions of lives. Anxiety, depression, bullying and suicidal thoughts are issues adults face as well. Due to everything with COVID-19, the public health experts project major increase with mental health issues. More than ever, we need a message of hope for all ages. Imagine the impact of a commercial that highlights the importance of purpose in life, and being kind to one another, rather than just promoting a companies product. Life is more than just money & things.

ONE OF MANY STORIES
I will never forget a student who came up to me after our assembly telling me that she had already planned to kill herself after school. She had already wrote the suicide letter and was just done with life. The only reason she came to school was to secretly say goodbye to her friends. She said because of the unbelievable timing of our assembly, it changed her thinking and she realized how much she now wanted to live. That evening her mom came with her daughter to our family night show and the mom had the suicide note in her hand and with tears rolling down her face hugged me thanking me for the words spoken at the assembly. There are numerous stories like this and because of your generosity, there will be many more lives impacted.
